How Much Do Tattoos Cost?
Tattoos vary in cost depending on size, where you want to place it, location, and more.
More Info: There is not one set price for tattoos, there are a lot of variables that decide the price. The artist is the one who decides the price and most tattoo artists will not wheel and deal with customers over the price.
Some artists charge per hour, some charge per square inch of the tattoo, and some require a minimum amount no matter how small the tattoo may be. The average hourly cost is $75 - $150. Of course, the bigger the tattoo is, the more it is going to cost you. There is a lot of work that goes into larger, detailed pieces of artwork and it takes a lot of time and talent to get the look that you want from your artist. Location of the tattoo on the body can also play into the costs as some areas are harder to tattoo than others.
Location of the artist can also be a factor in the price. Normally, tattoo shops located in larger cities will charge more, while shops in smaller communities may charge less.
Do your research before making a decision on who you want to tattoo you. You should find an artist who has a good reputation, has a clean, sterile shop and the artistic talent needed.
